Sky Habitat has 38 storeys with 509 units. Its design is inspired by Habitat 67, an architectural landmark in Montreal, Canada. Facilities include a children’s pool, play area, tennis court, BBQ pits, karaoke rooms, a function room and a gymnasium. What’s the best part and IG-worthy spot? An unobstructed panoramic views of Singapore Flyer and MacRitchie Reservoir from the Infinity Sky Pool on the 38th floor!

2. Accessibility, Amenities and Schools

Bishan Bus Interchange is just opposite the property! Right outside Sky Habitat is an open green field perfect for frisbees or walking your furry friends. Bishan MRT Station (where there are two MRT lines; Circle Line and North-South Line) is about nine minutes from Sky Habitat. The nearest major expressways are Central Expressway (CTE) and Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), driving to the Central Business District and Orchard Road will take about 24 minutes and 15 minutes respectively.

Dine and shop at Junction 8 where there’s an extensive number of retail shops and eating establishments. Bishan Public Library is around the corner too. Want a cosy dining experience? Check out cafes like The Living Room and Shamrock Cafe. Choose the option of exercising outdoors at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park (enjoy the fresh air!), or indoors at the Bishan Sports Hall and Recreation Centre and Bishan Community Club – all these are located less than 400m away from home.

Multiple reputable schools are within the vicinity too – they are Raffles Institution, Catholic High School, the Australian International School and Stamford American International School.

3. Increasing Rental Price and High Gross Rental Yield

Sky Habitat’s monthly rental price for a two-bedroom unit in 2019:
January to Dec 2018- up to $4,500
January to Dec 2019- up to $6,000

A high floor two-bedroom unit in Sky Habitat measuring 937 sqft is at S$1,600,000. Renting it out for $6,000 per month gives you a staggering 4.5% gross rental yield. This is higher than Singapore’s market gross rental yield of 3.3%!

How did we get 4.5%? (Gross rental income for 12 months/ purchase price of the property) x 100= gross rental yield.

Calculating for Sky Habitat’s Gross Rental Yield

A two-bedroom unit at Sky Habitat can cost $1,600,000 and the monthly rental contract is up to $6,000. You can check other rental rates for nearby two-bedroom properties using Ohmyhome.

Gross Rental Income of $6,000 x 12 months= $72,000/purchase price at $1,600,000= 0.045*100= 4.5%
